Markham’s unique recycling program diverts textile waste from landfill

Markham residents have no excuse to live with messy closets anymore. A novel recycling program launched by the municipality last fall to give residents a place to dump unwanted textiles such as mismatched socks, old underwear and worn out linens, has diverted more than 1.4 million kilograms of clothing waste from landfills in less than a year.
